Navigate Motherhood with Confidence: Perinatal Mental Health Support

Motherhood is a transformative journey, filled with both immense joy and unexpected challenges. If you're facing emotional struggles

during pregnancy, postpartum, or throughout parenthood, you're not alone. Our perinatal* mental health therapy offers a safe and

supportive space to navigate these experiences with compassion and understanding. Perinatal Mental Health Disorders can present as soon as conception, but also up to the first couple of years postpartum. 

You deserve to feel supported and empowered during this transformative time. I am here to walk alongside you, offering

guidance and support as you navigate the transition to motherhood as well as working through any past trauma or challenges that arise. 

My intention is to hold a judgement free space where you can share your true feelings without shame, discuss how hard intrusive thoughts can be, how heavy the guilt can feel, and all the overwhelm.

We don't have to be alone in our pain. 

*The term "perinatal" focuses on the period of time from

conception through the postpartum period that follows.

The birth of your first child isn't just about welcoming a new life, it's a portal to your own transformation. This adventure into the unknown territory of parenthood, truly covers the spectrum of emotions.  This rebirth of self, can active traumas, attachment wounds and triggers we were not previously aware of.  We will utilize various techniques, including EMDR, to work through symptoms or experiences that appear.

Even with the best resources, this journey holds unexpected challenges and requires constant adaptation. It's easy to feel isolated, questioning your every move as you navigate triggers, surging emotions, and the ever-present desire for perfection. But amidst the whirlwind, a deeper truth emerges: your worth isn't tied to being "perfect." It lies in your willingness to learn, grow, and meet the needs of both your child and yourself. Breaking these cycles is work, but always worth it.


Release the old narratives of unrealistic expectations, and embrace the messy beauty of this journey. You are enough, perfectly imperfect, and ready to discover the parent you are capable of becoming.

The one that made me a mom 2014

“The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but
the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.”

—Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh


Holding space and working with this population has evolved over the years, both through new modalities, as well as my own parenting journey. 

As a mother of two young children, I've personally experienced the emotional rollercoaster of motherhood. From grieving your old life, wrestling with mom guilt, and navigating the impossible work-life balance to the pressures of social media and the ever-present mental load, it's clear that parenting in today's world comes with a unique set of challenges.

Social media bombards us with unrealistic expectations – picture-perfect families and spotless homes – making us

feel like failures when our reality may be more messy and overwhelming. Even the pictures on this page each tell their own story during that time in my life.


Let's create a space that celebrates the true spectrum of motherhood – the messy, beautiful, and everything in between.
